Makes: 5-1/2 dozen
Prep: 45 minutes, Bake: 12 minutes

2-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt
1 cup Skippy® Natural Creamy or Super Chunk® Peanut Butter Spread
12 Tbsp. I Can't Believe It's Not Butter! ® All Purpose Sticks
3/4 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup ‑firmly packed brown sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 350°.

Combine flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt in small bowl; set aside.
Beat Skippy® Natural Creamy Peanut Butter Spread with I Can't Believe It's Not
Butter!® All Purpose Sticks in large bowl with electric mixer until smooth.
Beat in sugars, then eggs and vanilla until blended. Beat in flour mixture
just until blended.

Shape dough into 1-inch balls. Arrange cookies on ungreased baking sheet, 2
inches apart

Bake 12 minutes or until lightly golden. Remove to wire rack and cool
completely. Decorate, if desired, to look like spiders.*

*Note: If decorating like spiders, press a mini peanut butter cup into top of
each cookie while still warm. When chocolate starts to melt, attach pretzel
"legs" by sticking them into melted chocolate. Let cool completely then attach
coated candy pieces for ''eyes'' and sugar pearls for ''pupils'' with peanut
butter. Don't have sugar pearls? White decorating gel also works.
